Chemical Principles Laboratory
Last Update: January 06, 2017
Welcome to the Chemical Principles laboratory page. Starting in the spring of 2017 all CHEM 130 and CHEM 131 materials will each be in a single PDF file. Look for the additional information as either a note at the end of the exercise or as a link to a section within each lab manual. Please let your instructor know if there are any broken links or if there appears to be any information missing. The order in which the exercises are given in each lab manual is the order in which they are usually performed during the semester, but please check your syllabus for the actual dates.
No later than the week before the first laboratory meeting be sure that you have read and understood the Truman Policies on the Laboratory Safety page and completed the required safety training. Also read the Laboratory Notebook and the Before Laboratory pages so that you are familiar with preparing and keeping a laboratory notebook.
ATTENTION CHEM 130 AND 131 STUDENTS! Your safety quiz, safety contract and policy contract are on Blackboard. CHEM 130 and 131 students must complete the checklist found on the Blackboard page for their course, which includes passing the safety quiz with a score of 100%. The health form must be completed and returned your instructor at the first laboratory meeting of the semester.
